    Just because you promised something doesn't mean you should have to pay it. There are many shady NGO's& foundations out there in the name altruism that is being used for funneling money to personal causes. No matter how good Dustin's public persona is, if he couldn't provide the detailed plan for the money he is getting received then it is his fault.

    I have witnessed these things before, where a public persona running these sorts of foundation for good PR only to later found out that they have been funneling those donations money to their own personal accounts all along.

    So you are assuming the guy who has been known for being a good dude is being a piece of shit while the actual known piece of shit is part of the situation.......

    Seems about right for sherdog.

    Dustin Poirier's plan all along was to con WME, the Fertitta's, Dana, and Conor through his foundation and charity work.

    Who knows? May be this good guy persona of Dustin is just a mask for public, for optics. One guy being a douche doesn't negate this possibility; does it? They both can be douche simultaneously.

    Very few if any major gifts / donors are going to pony up half a million dollars without sitting down with the director of the foundation or charity

    I mean 4 thread's on the main page.

    tons of pages in some of these threads.

    I'd say Conor's marketing genius is at it again.

    Then why not make your enquiries BEFORE making the promise, huh?

    Gotta agree. Lets be real here. Dustins foundation is not worth millions of dollars yet. 500k would be a massive donation to that charity so I think its perfectly fine that he asked for a detailed plan as to where the money is going. For all we know 5% could be going to the charity and the other 95% to Dustin and his wifes bank account.

    This has become a strange, strange situation on Sherdog.

    Typically we're exposed to Sherscientists, Sherpsychologists, SherAnalystists and SherExperts but today a new breed has risen from under our feet, the SherAccountant. I've seen it all. Never change Dog.

    Being known as a “good dude” doesn’t mean shit

    Some people seem to assume Poirier is a good dude without knowing really anything about him.

    Im sure he has other people actually running the thing. If the charity is up to shady shit, it's not necessarily Porier's doing

    I have worked in philanthropy before, for a donation of that size, you would expect a full proposal with outputs / budget etc.

    Best practice / procedure..

    Poirier's team try to contact Conor's representative regarding the donation but there had been no reply.

    After the third time trying, Poirier just give it up.

    If your word means nothing you are worthless. You should absolutely have to uphold your promises.
